Theme Afternoon

Tiffany Chung - Begleitausstellung

Strawberries from Vietnam

With Christina Wild
5 May 2019 | Johann Jacobs Museum | GE

Christina Wild (JJM, Researcher) will give an introduction into the history of the plantations of Da Lat, French Indochina’s agricultural laboratory in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The plantation systems developed there transformed the demographic structures of the Lang-Bian plateau, filled French Indochina’s coffers (and later that of the Viet Cong), rerouted the movements of U.S. soldiers and transformed Vietnamese cuisine. All of it for the inimitable taste of strawberries.


Theme afternoon on the occasion of the exhibition Tiffany Chung – Thủ Thiêm.
